It seems these days like automakers are coming together more and more often for the good of their customers, and we here at Passport BMW couldn't be more excited about it! After all, creating truly green vehicles is an endeavor that requires some of the greatest minds that the industry has to offer, so it only makes sense that otherwise competing automakers might set aside their differences in order to create the most eco-friendly vehicles possible.
The deal that we're referring to, of course, is between BMW and Toyota. The two companies are planning to possibly swap technologies next year, so that vehicles in their respective lineups could benefit. For BMW, this means sharing its industry-leading diesel technology. However, in the process of doing so, they'd gain valuable information on making hybrid models from the creators of the iconic Prius,
Does this seem like a fair deal to you? Or is BMW getting a raw deal? Personally, we're interested to see what BMW could do with the Oval T's hybrid platform. We also would love you know what you think, so make sure to leave us a comment below!
We should also note that while these two automakers do compete on one level, they also sell two very distinct classes of vehicles. It goes without saying then that this is one of the most mutually beneficial deals that we've seen between automakers, since they won't be introducing the technologies gained into competing segments.
